Purpose of Administrative Penalty Program
One priority of the City is to maintain a high standard of livability, health, and safety in our residential and commercial neighborhoods. The Administrative Penalty Program is designed to resolve City Ordinance violations outside the Hennepin County court system. An administrative citation is a civil penalty, not a criminal charge. 

Citation Process
If you receive an administrative citation, you may correct the violation and pay the fine or you have the option to request a hearing for the purpose of having a third party determine whether or not a violation(s) of City Ordinance existed. Please note that regulations cannot be changed through the Administrative Penalty Hearing process. 

If you feel you received the citation in error or need information about how to correct the violation, please contact the City employee who issued the citation.

To Request an Appeal
To request a hearing, you must submit in writing your reason for the request, as well as a hearing deposit fee of $20 within 10 days of the citation date.
